Neuro-Trauma Informed Mindfulness
Touch can be a wonderful substitute for the breath as an anchor in your meditation practice. Touch can also help when you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or detached. In this meditation, you will use something that you like to feel, hold onto or touch as a way of self-regulating and grounding. Choose something that you want to feel in your hand or on your body (a weighted blanket would work well for instance) before you start the meditation, or - just imagine something!
